    What Are These?

    I think the small one is a Bolen Bevel but am not sure. And I have no idea on the larger one. Both found in south west Georgia.

    Nice finds , that bigger one is really nice , Iím curious to know the type as well. Field finds or creek ?
    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Nice finds! Small one is a Bolen, bigger one looks old and well used. Could easily be Paleo.

    Redstone is sure jumping out at me. Short for that type, but sure has the looks of one!

    I found it in the bottom of a $3.00 box of field grade points, brokes and pieces of adobe that I bought at an estate sale last year. I finally went through the box today to sort the keepers from the junk. The bolen was in there and this piece was under a brown paper bag. I have no idea if it is real or not.

    The paleo point looks modern to me. No patina and perfect edge outline. That rarely happens on a 10,000 yr. old point. Gary

    Thanks. I feel like it is not the real thing but I don't know a lot about points other than what I read here.

    The Clovis that you found and posted under "...most rare artifact" is also perfect in outline, and patina varies so drastically depending on material and soil conditons, so I don't see how those two criteria alone are enough to say yea or nay on the point's authenticity. I'm not saying that it's authentic, nor could I dismiss it solely on those two factors alone.
